I called this dish “meat pie” because it’s got meat and some crust...but the method of preparation is none like the English meat pie. Taste wise, it’s "SPICY" and absolutely awesome!! Its a regional preparation of North Kerala called "Adhishaya Pathiri" in Malayalam.
Once more, I should warn you...it's a very very spicy dish! I love a lot of meat and thin layers seperating them but you could thicken the layers and adjust according to your taste. Addition of cream to the egg mixture will give you the custardy texture. I have not added it though because the authentic recipe does not have cream.
Here the recipe calls for baking. You can cook it on the stove too, at medium heat in a heavy bottom and heavy lid non-stick vessel. Meat can be replaced by vegetables or chicken too.
Happy cooking J.
